Bonny Away

Come with me up to old Dumfries,
For to meet there the Anvil Priest,
Now the two of us are sixteen,
We’ll be headed for Gretna Green

In a book I did read it so,
Lovers do to this village go,
We’ll be gone in the dead of night,
Wednesday we will be man and wife

Come away Bonny come my love, Bonny away (x 2)

We wont rest on our journey north,
In the footsteps of those before,
There our travel will be complete,
Where old England and Scotland meet

Come away Bonny come my love, Bonny away (x 2)

God speed us there
Even if the storm does break
Let your young heart lead the way
Let your young heart lead the way

Come away Bonny come my love, Bonny away (x 4)

  1. My wife & I both adore this one, if there is a way we can own a copy of this song, we’ll buy it! It’s the only possible thing I could think of that would make Forge & Flagon better! It’s a pretty perfect album as it is, though!

    I’m with Nick on this one. I’ve already bought all the songs from iTunes, but this one seems impossible to find. Where can we get a copy?
